Kia Gets Redesigned New Logo

Kia has recently launched a number of great vehicles like the Telluride crossover, the K5 sedan, the Seltos, the new Sorento, and many more in the US. All this is a part of Kia’s elaborate “Plan S” strategy.

Kia will officially begin the Plan S early next year. The global CEO, Mr.Song wants the brand to be “more dynamic, stylish, and inventive,” with a stronger emphasis on electric vehicles. Kia promises at least 11 EVs by the year 2025.

Kia’s upcoming EVs will be built on a new moderately priced Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP), shared with Hyundai. With these new EVs, Kia expects to generate at least 20 percent of worldwide sales by 2025, and even more by 2029.

Kia is also expected to introduce a new logo, which was first previewed on the electric Imagine concept car in 2019. This new look will make its debut on a production vehicle next year.

The new Kia logo features a stark, italicized treatment to the traditional lettering, claiming to give it a more modern look. All three letters now connect to each other, and ditches the signature circular surround. Stay tuned for further updates.

    Ford India is soon to launch a new updated top spec variant of its best selling Ecosport compact SUV. This new variant will be called the Signature Edition and will get some significant changes on the exterior and interior.

    Exterior:

    The new Ecosport SE will not be available with the tailgate mounted spare wheel as standard. Just like the globally sold Ecosport, the Indian SE Variant will also let go of the tailgate mounted spare wheel and instead, will have the number plate on the tail gate. The rear bumper also gets a larger skid plate design. The reverse camera will be

    mounted in the number plate housing on the tailgate now.

    According to the Ministry of road transport and highways, it is not necessary for vehicles weighing under 3.5 tonnes and equipped with tubeless tyres with Tyre pressure monitoring system to have spare tyre. Hence, the tailgate mounted spare tire will be available as a paid option on this Signature Edition variant. As standard, this new variant is not likely to receive a spare wheel and instead it will get a puncture repair kit.

    At the front though, the Ford Ecosport SE will remain exactly the same without any changes.

    Interior:

    On the inside, this new Ford Ecosport Signature Edition will get some new features and significant updates. This new Variant will get Tyre pressure monitoring system integrated into the brand new 12.3” touchscreen system expected to be launched exclusively on this variant. This new super-large touchscreen will also get Android auto and Apple carplay compatibility along with the existing Ford Pass connected car features. The centre console too will be significantly different on this updated top spec variant.

    All the other features including Auto headlamps and wipers, Cruise control, Electric sunroof, Auto Climate control and keyless access will be carried forward from the existing variants.

    Powertrain:

    The Ford Ecosport will continue to retain the very same 1.5L Petrol and Diesel engine options with a 5 speed Manual transmission as standard. At present, only the Titanium plus petrol is available with a 6 speed torque converter automatic gearbox. This gearbox is also likely to be available on the new Signature Edition variant as well.

    At present the Ford Ecosport ranges from Rs.7.99L to Rs.11.19L (ex showroom) for the petrol range and Rs.8.69L to Rs.11.49L (ex showroom) for the Diesel range.

    Stay tuned for further updates on the new Ford Ecosport Signature Edition.


    In terms of looks, the Facelifted model receieves many visual updates. The front looks a bit more aggressive and more modern. LED headlamps, new bumper design and grille give it the much needed change from the boring avatar it had. The rear has remained mostly unchanged apart from the LED tail lamps and a rear skid plate integrated quite well into the rear bumper.

    The interior of the new Facelifted Nissan Kicks is quite different from the existing India-spec model. The central AC vents are positioned above the 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system while it also has a semi-digital instrument cluster with

Other changes include a flat-bottom steering wheel, updated centre console for the e-Power drive train, six airbags, active safety systems like front collision warning and rear cross traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, auto headlamps, 360-degree camera and engine start-stop button. That’s a good deal of features to start with!

    While the Kicks e-Power and its hybrid powertrain are unlikely to come to India, Nissan could refresh the existing model with updates from the Facelift e-Power version that could go on sale in 2021. Nissan had previously stated it will study the feasibility of the e-Power tech in India, but so far no announcement has been made regarding its introduction. The Thai-spec Nissan Kicks e-Power starts at a price od from Rs 21 lakh (converted 889,000 baht), which is quite a lot of money for a car that size.
